This program has two powerful components! One person will win the book deal, but even if they don't, all contestants will gain valuable skills and learn what it takes to get noticed. I think this is an amazing opportunity we're offering. James Twyman.

Your Vote Can Help Discover the Next Top Spiritual Author!
With over 200,000 titles published each year in the U.S. alone, up-and-coming authors have a tough time being noticed by publishers. The Next Top Spiritual Author competition, brainchild of New York Times bestselling author James F. Twyman and Robert Evans, creator of the Messenger Mini-Book Program, aims to change that.
The winner receives a contract from Hampton Roads Publishing, a premiere publisher of spiritual titles including the Conversations with God series by Neale Donald Walsch. The winner also gets a promotional package worth more than $50,000 and James Twyman will introduce books by three other competitors to publishers and agents in the spiritual book market.

"We want everyone who participates to win! We've put together a powerful home study program that will help people develop the skills any publisher looks for. I hope that we help produce several bestselling authors through this program. Robert Evans"
“We are very excited to be involved with this program. Not only is the competition unique in and of itself, the added aspect of allowing the public to participate in the voting process on which authors progress to the next round is an important distinction from other writing contests. Randy Davila, CEO of Hampton Roads”
Other experts in publishing and marketing—including Marianne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch, and Arielle Ford will help participants in the optional home study course learn how to benefit from being in the contest.
Charles Betterton, founder of the Ultimate Destiny University for Conscious Sustainable Living and coauthor of the Ultimate Destiny Success System is one of the 2,500 authors in the contest. He and his team of 8 coauthors have participated in dozens of publishing and marketing training programs over the past few years—with experts such as Mark Victor Hansen, creator of Wealthy Writers Wisdom Training Program— and Arielle Ford, creator of Everything You Need to Know About Publishing, Publicity, Promotion and Building A Platform to create their Ultimate Publishing and Marketing Resources list.
“The contest has become more of a collaborative community than a contest. Hundreds of the 2,500 authors are actively supporting one another in the chat room provided for participants to share their ideas and receive advice and feedback. Charles Betterton" In fact, the primary reason I entered is to connect with other authors, to develop new strategic alliances and find more new books that we can include as featured resources in our publications, he added.
Betterton’s contest entry—Crowned with the Ultimate Success of the Lord: Discover Seven Ascension Attitudes That Help You Awaken to Spirit, Realize More of Your Potential, and Know How To Co-create Your Ultimate Destiny -- is designed to help readers enjoy greater love and well-being; find inner peace and wisdom; and create more abundance, prosperity, and success in their lives. It includes self-discovery exercises, featured resources, and a number of bonuses—including several from other authors in the contest. More details are provided in the downloadable 22 page PDF.
Anyone can register at the contest web site and vote for as many of the authors as they would like to support. Voting closes May 3 and then the top 250 authors advance to Round 2. To register and vote in the contest, go to: http://www.nexttopauthor.com/profile.cfm?aid=8
